    Sad, didn't get it this time. But probably because I used this deal extensively in the previous round. It is probably targeting people that didn't use the offer last time?

    For anyone using the app make sure to select the bowser first before filling up. It doesn't support paying after.

      Thank you, that's helpful to know.

      Yep, good call! Got stung by that on my first go around!

    •  

      I’ve not used the app before.

      So do you basically,
      1. Rock up and open the app
      2. Select the bowser and then what? Fill up first or do you pre determine how much to fill in app?

      And then what? Just drive off?

      •  

        Pretty much…

        •  

          So if I select I want $40 of petrol, so the pump know to just to pump that amount and stop? To stop you from over filling

          @cloudy: I think you just stop where you want (not pre-selected). But I haven't used the app since the last promo, so maybe that's an option now.

          The app just seems to know the amount you stopped at, and it pre-charges like $1 to your account when you start.

        •  

          @midlake: The main thing is to make sure it has "unlocked" the pump before you lift it off to fill up - you just choose the number you have lined up against and it takes about 10seconds to go.

          After you put it down the app should automatically take care of payment.

          Just make sure you set up payment details in advance otherwise you'll be sitting around waiting to slowly enter it in.

        This is from the BP website:

        A BPme is incredibly easy to use. There are four simple steps once you’ve downloaded the app on your smartphone and added a payment method:

        1. Pull up at a BP pump, turn your engine off and open the BPme app (while in the car)
        2. Confirm your pump number and payment method
        3. Leave your phone in your car, get out and fill up
        4. Jump back in your car, rate your experience and receive a receipt. It’s that easy!

        It’s important to note that your BPme app must only be used inside your stationary car, with your engine turned off.

        More details here.

          Thanks, I watched the app tutorial as well. What I hate about instructions is that they make it sound so simple and easy, but smells more like marketing BS. reading the reviews and comments clearly show a lot more then the 3 simple steps it states lol

        •  

          @cloudy:
          It's easy and beats waiting to pay at the counter.
          Sometimes it does feel weird driving off as other drivers think u haven't paid

        •  

          @mmd:

          I would use BPMe everytime I filled up, apart from the fact there are no petrol coupons and BP is more expensive than the rest. Great app, poor retailing.

    •  

      The first time Amex had this offer I made the mistake of filling up at a BP that doesn't support the app, even though the app directed me to that station as "my nearest BP". Luckily I called Amex and they were understanding enough to credit the $10 to my account.
      This time I will make sure to fill up at a supported BP.

      •  

        To be safe, try your larger BP stations. The smaller stores may not support refuelling using the app.

        • +1 vote

          Yep that was the mistake I made the first time I used this deal but I see now the BPme app had added a feature that identifies the supported servos on the map. Looks pretty good.

          A bonus would be if it had the current fuel prices so you could choose where to fill up. I'm going to look at one of the fuel price apps to choose the best BP. A little bit more effort but every dollar counts for an OzBargainer :)

    •  

      I made the same mistake when I first used it a few months ago. But I asked if I could pay via the app and the attendant was able to manually transferred my transaction over.

  •  

    Thanks OP!

  •  

    Not as good as the original offer but better than nothing

  •  

    Thanks OP. Didn’t receive second time around on Plat Edge, but did get it on new Velocity Platinum.

    I used the offer last time. I have not received the offer this time.

    Anyone having trouble downloading the BPme app? It says it's not compatible with my device. I have a Samsung S7. Never seen that issue before.

    Got it last time. Got it this time

    Manual link please?

  •  

    I only got a $10 off.. Never used BPme offer before

  •  

    Got the offer.

    However the reviews for the Android app are pretty terrible. That being said I won't get a chance to try because "this app is not compatible with your device" - Samsung Note 8 - WTF?

  • +2 votes

    I ride a motorbike so have used it at least once a week since the previous offer got me into it, saves pulling off my helmet to enter the store. Haven't had a problem with it since and it's easy enough to use. Just wait till you get the green unlock tick and you're good to go. Also a great way to save receipts as it's emailed to you straight after - for those that can claim it.

      Reading the comments interested to see so many issues with the app, I'm using a Galaxy S7 and I find it pretty good and straightforward. Just the small delays between confirming the servo, picking the pump and payment method. Otherwise pretty straight forward?

      • +2 votes

        The common themes on the app reviews are:

        • Very slow, even at opening
        • Not all servos are supported
        • Failing to connect to pumps
        • Many handsets not properly supported - just get a white screen
        • Can't get Velocity Points

        As a biker I too would appreciate the potential ease of use - glad its working for you RickyCruise but theres a review from a biker relaying the exact opposite experience that you've had. The BP response to this review was to tell him he wasn't allowed to use the phone except in a car or in the shop and to stop using the app!

        • +2 votes

          Fair call thanks for relaying that mate. Pretty poor of BP to do so, people fill up with phones in their pocket which given the proximity is more dangerous, I maintain the practice of placing the phone on my seat (the back of the seat away from tank fillup - would be different for every bike) and operate it from there and leave it there.. Let's guess marketing has gone ahead and done up this app and practicality operationally for the crew on the ground goes out the window. Sorry to hear of other users experiencing those issues, with the financial might of BP you think they could get it right for all, hope they do as when it works, especially for us motorbike users, it's great..

        •  

          It's a shame it doesn't get Velocity points, this is pretty much the only reason I occasionally use BP when I can find a half decent fuel price.

          I will still use this offer as a $10 rebate makes it well worthwhile but usually BP is a lot more expensive so it's not my regular servo.

    •  

      Good to know it works for some. I was starting to think companies are going too far trying to make everything mobile for no good reason.

  •  

    Got on my qantas discovery
    Couldn’t use it last time as I was overseas

    Hi guys,

    how do i add these special amex codes to the supplementary cards? when i got my amex and got a supplementary card for a family member, i was not able to add her supplementary card to my online account so i cant go in and add offers onto her card?

    • +1 vote

      A sure fire way of checking is logging on to the website or app. It works for my supplementary card.

      •  

        I had to create a new account for the supplementary card and log in through that account to get the codes as its for my mum who doesnt know much about all this,i will have to keep track of both logins i guess. I had hoped i would be able to add the supplementary card onto my login.

    • +1 vote

      Better use one login for each card because if you save an offer onto ine card then it wont be available for the remaining cards, unless you use multiple login tabs within your device. After that the only way is to register through the manual sign up link, which can be difficult to get at times.

    •  

      I specifically set up my Primary and Supplementary cards against two different accounts so that I prevent the possibility of losing out on deals but my wife has all THREE of her Amex cards linked and has access to the BPMe offering for all three.

      Go figure…

  •  

    Is there a way of adding velocity number to BPme app? Or can you swipe velocity card at pump?

    • +2 votes

      No and no

    • +2 votes

      This is one of the reasons why I only use my BPMe app just for the Amex Deals. The other reason is because it is not in all BPs yet (in particular my regular BP Norlane (Geelong) station).

  •  

    Thanks OP. Got it on my new Westpac-Amex card.

  •  

    Bugger, not showing up for me, probably because i only fill up at BP

  •  

    got it on my westpac branded amex, not my engineers australia amex.

  •  

    Damn, not showing for me, though I did get the last offer and used it.

  •  

    Last time I try to use the BPme app terrible, none of the stores seemed to except it

  •  

    Last time I tried this app, when I got to the servo, BP Me was disabled (or not enabled) on the LPG/Autogas pumps. Not sure if this happens at all BPs or just the one I used in regional VIC.

    •  

      Should you be using a mobile phone next to an LPG pump?

        Did you not read the instructions?

        Pull up at a BP pump, turn your engine off and open the BPme app (while in the car)

          @jv:

          Didn't even make it that far. Pulled into servo and opened app, couldn't get it working in app, closed app. Had no choice on petrol as was out in Gippsland so filled at normal price (after a few choice swears).

    •  

      Same in NSW. This is an email response I received:

      Thank you for taking the time to contact BP.

      Unfortunately pumped Adblue isn't available on BPme for BPme. There are regulations selling LPG that prevents us from offering it on BPme just yet. We will keep you updated if anything changes.

      If you have any further queries regarding BPme, please contact us as below.

      •  

        Interesting. Just looked it up:

        IMPORTANT – Due to safety reasons LPG purchases will not be permitted using BPMe.

        Perhaps what JV alluded to in not using a phone while fueling up is correct. I guess the 7/11 app gets around it by not specifying the pump and also paying inside.

  •  

    Don't have it :(

  •  

    Weird… I got it in one card but not the other…

    same type of AMEX card too…

  •  

    Do you need a bp plus card to use this app?

  •  

    Got it thanks OP!
    Missed out last time…

  •  

    Cheers OP.
    First time I think I've ever been targeted, added it to my card last time but never used it.
    Platinum Edge.

  •  

    is there anyway to link it to velocity to get bonus points?

  •  

    props to the stupidly excessive BPme signup procedure..

    Used it, liked it, probs wouldn't do it again until the bottom of the price gouge

    •  

      props to the stupidly excessive BPme signup procedure..

      the procedure makes my application for home loan look easy.

      •  

        Yea but borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars probably deserve a process. Paying for petrol? Shouldn’t be that hard. People take my cash every day without asking a question.

        •  

          I understand that, and it is good that banks take the procedures they do to ensure I can service the loan and to cross check everything. BP on the hand? Major paranoia!

  •  

    It looks suss if you drive off straight after you fill up without going to the counter to pay?
